I need to know which is preferable: One-Year or First when describing Anniversary.

Just be careful never to describe it as a "last anniversary"

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

It's for an ad at work. People insist on requesting "one-year anniversary" which is rather redundant. "First anniversary" sounds better to my mind! Just wanted to see what were y'all's preferences.

First Anniversay - definitely...

One year anniversary is a tautology by default..

I like it. Sort of. It's okay. It really doesn't matter. I don't care.

Who gives a flyin' rat's arse about the stinking polls!? Get over it or ante up already!

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

There's a ton of options to sign up, as you can see on the sign up page. All manner of credit cards, PayPal, first borns (Thanks PB!), personal cheque, we will even take cash. (bills only please, no coins, unless they are really cool) [Big Grin]

Just to make it very clear, Nitro and I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the generosity of SuperFans. Giving them the ability to create and use polls in the rest of the Forums is just one way we can thank them again for that.

Come on now kids, play nice!

Whilst I don't really see the advantage of posting polls in the public forums, (I think that if you want non-superfans opinions on a topic, it would be better served with a question rather than a poll- you need to read the liters responses anyway) now we all know that us mere mortals cannot play with the big boys and it is easy to avoid clicking.


Can't we all just get along?

'First Anniversary' if there is the prospect of reaching, or the desire to reach, the Second Anniversary, otherwise just 'Anniversary' - the 'One-year' bit is redundant.

Just my opinion. FWIW.

I just think it would sound silly to say "Five-year anniversary" or "twenty-year anniversary". So does one-year anniversary. I'd say first anniversary is the way to go. [thumbsup]
